Default Live 2008 Bowman Chrome Case Break

Got my case today and I'm ready to go. I will have to take a break or two along the way and may not finish tonight. Whatever doesn't get done tonight, I will do tomorrow. Most things will go to eBay, although I may keep a few things. I'll list refractors and autos by box. I'll be sorting and scanning as I go, so there will be some time between each one. I will probably only put the scans on eBay, unless there is something REALLY good, then I will try to post it here too. Box one coming up!

Here is a list of the odds-Vet/Prospect for refractors

Ref- ?/1:40 (didn't seem to have odds for a vet ref),XFractor-1:40/1:79, Blue Ref- 1:66/1:131, Gold Ref- 1:197/1:393, Orange Ref- 1:393/1:785, Red Ref- 1:1,972/1:3924, Super- 1:8308/1/16694, Printing Plate- 1:1382, Auto Plate- 1:10471, HOC Auto- 1:1773, HOC Ref- 1:6298, HOC XFrac-1:12823, HOC Super- 1:589824 Prospect Auto- 1:31, Auto Ref- 1:88, Auto XFrac- 1:175, Auto Blue- 1:295, Auto Gold- 1:953, Auto Orange- 1:1784, Auto Red- 1:8459, Auto Super- 1:40216

I couldn't get a scan to work--the package was too shiny to read--so hopefully that works. I just finished dinner and will get going on box #2......hopefully it will be a bit better than #1, although the Joba and Wright cards weren't bad and a Yankee auto is always worth a little more.

Well, hopefully it can only get better. I forgot to mention that they did add Fukudome to the checklist. He is not with the other rookies at the end of the base set though--he is card #155. I got one in this box.......just trying to make this box look a little better!!! Ahhhh, the highs and lows of Bowman Chrome--I just hope I see some highs soon!!!

Ouch - those odds are TIGHT. If I read that correctly, you are actually beating the odds if you pull just 2 Prospect BLUE Refractors in the case. Am I crazy or does that seem a heck of a lot tighter than in the past?

Also in the past, the Odds of Vet/Prospect X-Fractors on up were all even odds. Now it seems they are different. Are the Vet X-Fractors versus the Prospect X-Fractors numbered differently? What's up with that?

EDIT:

Actually - my last question here is probably naive. It's probably just that Topps is doing a better job of dividing up the odds on the packs whereas before they just lumped them together (but it was really split odds anyway - they just didn't show it).

Last 3 box autos have been good players but I am just curious to know how market will react to those players having cards printed in prior years-

interested in the Jardan Zimmerman if available

Nice box there, but could there have been much of a bigger waste of a gold refractor??

Looks like there are 2 versions of the Fukudome--a green rookie card and a veteran style card with him in Japan......not sure if one is SP or not. So far I have 2 of the green and I just got a Japan card. I only see 2 of his cards on eBay right now and one is a Blue Ref of the Japan card.....the other is a printing plate of the rookie card (I think).

Thanks for posting. I hope you make out OK but Topps should never be allowed to sell another "chrome" product again based on those pack odds and the average autograph hit. Most of the autos have prior chrome cards and it is 48% harder than 2007 Bowman Chrome to hit a #d prospect refractor meaning they cranked up the press. Topps = Upper Deck at this point.

For those unaware, the Angel Villalona auto is a redemption.

Box #7- This will likely be it for tonight. A decent case at the half-way point.....no HUGE hits, but the Zimmerman should be solid and most of the other autos are good. A couple of good refractors as well. Hopefully one or two bigger hits in this second half.

Veteran/Rookie Refractors
Dan Haren
Troy Patton
Johnny Cueto
Corey Hart
Chien-Ming Wang
Hiroki Kuroda
Jim Edmonds

Veteran X-Fractor
Adrian Beltre 224/250

Prospect Refractor
Hector Gomez 5/500

Prospect X-Fractor
Brad Emaus 187/250

Autograph
Tim Bascom Blue Refractor 70/150

Eleven hits in that one--a good way to end for the night. Good to see some color in the auto this time too. Don't know a lot about Bascom, although it looks like it is his first card by anyone, so that should be good. Five more to go tomorrow--that Villalona Super is still waiting for me, I guess!

Chaz Roe should not be allowed to have any more autograph cards, seems like I get him in anything I buy.
